Total cop-out as competition gives no 1st or 2nd but three 3rd prizesNews
The Geneva International Music Competition found a jury for its oboe section that could not walk and chew gum at the same time.
Having decided that none of the contestants was worth first or second prize, they divided third prize among three of them – a risible act of indecision.
The non-winners were:
Natalia Auli (26 years old, Venezuela),
Louis Baumann (26 years old, France)
and Zhiyu Sandy Xu (28 years old, Australia).
